Samsung Galaxy Z Fold S could nab Surface Duo's best feature
Samsung will seemingly beat Xiaomi to the market with the Galaxy Z Fold S
It was previously rumored that the Galaxy Z Fold S would fold both ways, which is an interesting proposition. After all, making glass bend is complicated enough, and Samsung is already gearing up to make a two-way foldable phone. Unlike the Surface Duo, this device probably won't feature two screens.
Rather, it will sport a single flexible OLED panel and per a tipster, inward and outward folding would be made possible with a 360-degree hinge, like the one on the Surface Duo. Of course, a hinge is half of the puzzle, and the real deal would be making a display that's resilient enough to fold both ways. After all, despite all its improvements, the Z Fold 2's inner display still has a crease, which means Samsung hasn't quite nailed the bending part yet and a lot of work still has to be done.
Samsung rumored to have a 3rd foldable family member next year, tentatively known as Z Fold S.— Fold Universe (@folduniverse) September 5, 2020
It has got 360° hinge that enables outfold and infold and works similarly like the Surface Duo.

The company is reportedly working with Corning to make foldable phones more robust and we will likely see the first fruit of this partnership next year.
